Forum: GratefulDead Subject: places played

The news about Vermont being the last State Elton John hasn't played ( commemorated by Ben and Jerry's ), has me wondering what States, if any, did the Dead NOT play. Off the top of my head I can place them in most States but I'm drawing a blank in some of them such as Idaho and the Dakota's

Anyone know?

dead .net lists 45 states plus DC - secret8476 seems to have it just right:

I'm pretty sure they played Boise, Idaho (maybe '83 or so).
Not sure about the Dakotas - maybe Souix Falls SD?
What about Delaware?

Here's what i see -


They didn't play -
Arkansas
Delaware
N. Dakota
S. Dakota
Wyoming

And they never went to mexico - i guess they thought they would leave the Mexicalli Blooz where they belong

Hi Johnny - 1st, I just wanted to say hello.

2nd, Secret's secret is Deadbase! Get an old copy on ebay. Even if it only covers 65-91 or 92, it makes a fine resource.

Deadbase X is expensive, but the older, soft-bound copies can be had at a reasonable price.

hi back atcha Flow.

Of course I have a Deadbase, it's like a Bible to me only filled with usefull knowledge. Didn't have access to it now though. Also, I remember it listed venues but not States. It's been awhile since I glanced at it for anything other than setlists.

But does your Deadbase come with a similar type Bible warning label?:

This site is good as a quick reference to setlists, venues, states, songs, etc. http://www.setlists.net/

setlists.net is awesome. I use it all the time, in combo with whitegum.com/intro.htm for lyrics. My three websites are

archive.org
whitegum.com/intro.htm
setlists.net

those comprise 95% of my Dead info.

They may not have played public shows in Wyoming, but I've heard of "get togethers" in that area for friends and extended "family" - not surprising considering Barlow's ranch and some affiliates of the Millbrook scene/Hitchcock bros have big, big parcels out there. Of course, can't verify this, just been told the same by some much older folk that were around in the day.
